Here are a few more process shots for both the face and arms of Chester. The bottom and top of the face are cut from the same pieces so the upper and lower grain patterns match. The holes for the eyes and bow tie are routed out so pieces can be laid into them. The top of the arms are drilled out using a jig made so I can do 4 at a time. The body holes are drilled using a another jig. The Arms are secured in to the body with oak dowel rods in the drill holes, the dowels are not seen but keep the arms secured to the body much better than if they had been just glued on only. More tomorrow!
